Interestingly, it was the 27-year-old Garth who had replaced Dottin in the Gujarat Giants squad, who later released the Aussie in the off-season. Garth chose to be in the top bracket with the highest reserve price of Rs 50 lakh. West Indian all-rounder Deandra Dottin has been controversially excluded on medical grounds by Gujarat Giants.

Aussie all-rounders Annabel Sutherland and Georgia Wareham, English wicket-keeper Amy Jones, and South African pacer Shabnim Ismail are the only four players to be slotted with a base price of Rs 40 lakh.

The five franchises -- Delhi Capitals, Mumbai Indians, Gujarat Giants, UP Warriorz, and Royal Challengers Bangalore have 30 slots available with nine reserved for overseas players. A total of 60 players, including 21 foreigners, were retained by the five teams.

The Giants will have the biggest salary cap available to fill in 10 slots, while Delhi Capitals will enter the auction with a purse of Rs 2.25 crore. Defending champions Mumbai Indians have Rs 2.1 crore to fill five slots, while Royal Challengers Bangalore will look to pick seven players with a purse of Rs 3.35 crores and UP Warriorz will have Rs 4 crore purse to fill five spots at the auction.
